Abstract/Contents:Provides purchashing recommendations for consumers in the turfgrass industry. Defines a quality product as "a product that accomplishes the purpose for which it is designed and does this in a manner, which conforms to the product description or label." Emphasizes the potential responsibility of "every person involved in purchasing to gain the knowledge necessary to make educated decisions on the purchase of products used in his or her profession." Lists maintenance budgets, the level of play, and maintenance intensity as three vital aspects to consider when purchasing products.
